"Nothing is easier to weigh"
Precise, hygienic, quick: The new MULTIPOND protein weigher is setting standards in the meat processing industry.

Weighing meat mechanically presents great challenges. Animal products are very sensitive, they remain adhered to many surfaces and have to meet the most stringent hygiene requirements. In refining the MP-16-3800-1250-J multihead weigher, MULTIPOND has created the optimum solution for the meat market industry: The benefits of the proven J-Generation system, where hygiene and leak-tightness of the machine are the main concerns, are combined with a multitude of optimizations especially for the meat sector.

The complete package is the key
Distribution cone and feed trays have the tried and proven stepped profile. This patented innovation enormously improves the product conveying characteristics of the weigher and enables even adherent products to be conveyed in a controlled manner.
The surface profile, combined with a refined, significantly stronger feed tray drive and a special inclination of the feed trays, are the basis for the trouble-free and gentle conveying of meat, which in turn permits the highest accuracy and speed.

Intelligent reactions from the weigher
In order to improve the product flow to the distribution cone and feed trays even further, the weigher is equipped with two special 3D cameras. These cameras tell the software how the products are arranged on the distribution cone and feed trays. Using this information, the multihead weigher automatically implements measures to ensure uniform product distribution and resolves any problems, such as pieces of meat that have become stuck. Fragmented product distributions on the distribution cone and feed trays are diagnosed and resolved accordingly.

Optimized hygiene standards combined with the highest IP protection class
The protein weigher satisfies the most demanding hygiene requirements worldwide. The weigher is completely designed in accordance with USDA and EHEDG directives, creating the basis for simple, fast and reliable cleaning. Protection class IP69 is the ideal basis for the use of high-pressure cleaners. MULTIPOND is the only manufacture of multihead weighers globally that achieves this protection category without generating overpressure in the machine. No compressed air is required.

The weigher is designed for an output of up to 100 weighings per minute, depending on application, product and target weight, with the highest degree of accuracy.

Equipped for the growing meat market
With all its benefits, the new protein weigher is predestined for use in the meat processing industry. There is, without doubt, a demand: The meat market continues to grow, especially in South America. According to a report in the trade journal, in Brazil alone the export volume of beef has quadrupled in the last six years to reach four billion US $. At the same time, consumer demands for the hygienic processing of foodstuffs are growing. Thanks to its innovative product range, MULTIPOND enjoys an excellent market position – with quality high-performance technology "Engineered and Manufactured in Germany".

MULTIPOND is an owner-managed German company. For 70 years, the company name has stood for the highest quality standards in the industrial weighing technology sector. Precision, reliability and customer orientation are anchored as maxims in the company philosophy and form the basis for innovative strength and technical perfection. The weighing systems, which are setting new standards in many sectors, are produced exclusively in Germany. In addition to its headquarters in Waldkraiburg, Germany, MULTIPOND operates subsidiaries in France, the Netherlands, UK and the USA. A team of more than 250 employees pursues one aim worldwide: to provide optimum solutions for the needs and demands of customers from the food and non-food sectors.
